The second edition of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation has been revised throughout, and continues to provide an up-to-date and concise guide to the management of common cardiac emergencies including, in particular, the management of a full cardiorespiratory arrest. As well as dealing with cardiac arrest associated with ischaemic heart disease, details are also given of the management of cardiac arrest from less common causes, including asthma, pulmonary embolism, anaphylaxis, and drug overdose. This edition also includes new recommendations for the management of peri-arrest rhythms. The chapter on paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation; written by Dr David Zideman has been fully updated in line with the most recent paediatric guidelines following the recommendations of the European Resuscitation Council and the APLS.
This book will be particularly useful to doctors and nurses working in Accident and Emergency or general medicine, and to paramedics. It will also be useful to those who may occasionally be required to attempt resuscitation; this book will lessen their anxiety and improve their effectiveness.
